Everything we know about Aivela and Esne so far. I’ll be keeping this post updated.
The Star Wars The Old Republic Developers have been teasing the next Boss in the Gods of the Machine Operation on Social Media. The second Boss is actually a twin boss encounter (like Jarg and Sorno in Karagga’s Palace) where we will face off against two more superweapons, Aivela and Esne.
We learned from the Road Map that this encounter will be released in July as the pinnacle of Game Update 5.3 Sisters of Carnage. Game Update 5.3 is set to launch on Tuesday, July 11th.
Esne is one of the Twin Bosses we will encounter. She is the Goddess of Envy in the Zakuul Pantheon of Gods and one of the superweapons of Iokath. Pictured below is concept art of Esne shared on social media (click on the image to enlarge).
Aivela is the Goddess of Passion in the Zakuulan Pantheon of Gods and another superweapon built by the native Iokath people prior to their extinction. Pictured below is concept art of Aivela shared on social media (click on the image to enlarge).
The setting for the boss encounter has a Wildstar and Borg vibe to it. It honestly looks pretty amazing! Pictured below is what appears to be an in-game screenshot of the encounter stage (click on the image to enlarge).
Our first in-game glimpse of the encounter was revealed recently on SWTOR.com.
SWTOR (and some Bioware influencers) also released teasers of the encounter. Below is the SWTOR Teaser showing the opening cinematic.
What do you think so far? Are you looking forward to seeing this encounter?
